Microsoft Shares the SharePoint Wealth
SharePoint -- or Microsoft Office SharePoint Server, or even MOSS -- is a hit.
It's a moneymaker
and a collaborative boon for customers. And while it was already
a cash driver for partners, SharePoint just got a bit better for the channel.
Software Assurance subscribers can now take advantage of what Redmond is calling
Planning Services, a program that helps them deploy the popular SharePoint
enterprise portal. SharePoint Deployment Planning Services is a little like
a program that the Office team offers, apparently -- but, most importantly for
the channel, it'll be partners who will be taking care of the bulk of the SharePoint
assistance for customers.
Some of you know this by now, of course, as a pilot program has been underway
for a short while. For those who don't, now is the time to look at becoming
part of SDPS, as we have a feeling that it's going to be something customers
will want...well, right now, actually.
We'd like to hear your SharePoint success stories from both the partner and
customer perspectives. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
